Harder Kulm

This weekend we’ll be doing a ridge hike that looks over the picturesque town of Interlaken.


This is a lengthy and demanding ridge hike into the conservation area of the ibex colony on the Augstmatthorn, one of the most beautiful vantage points in the Lake Brienz area. After a very steep descent to Lombachalp, the trail leads through magnificent Alpine meadows to Habkern. We begin however, at the top of the Harder railway where we can enjoy a magnificent view over Lake Brienz.
